f00bar I'm giving mine the first half of the season to see if I have them dialed in and am used them. They just may not be for me, possibly because while my boot size says I should be in a medium its a close enough fit they they are not that easy to slide in correctly. Or I'm just too much of a tard for them.

I will say it was wicked awesome the time getting off the lift the s hook that is under the chair and keeps the seat padding attached to it hooked the cable and whipped me around the bull wheel

The ski patrol guys at the top were amazed I just walked away from that one.

Be careful 'bout blaming it on your bindings! Some people get real touchy about that on this board. You clearly just don't know how to strap into your bindings.

Nivek I have been using Flow consistently for about 6 years now. I also ride a lot of other 2 strap bindings. Flow make solid bindings that have earned their spot in my rotation. But there is a certain feel that 2 strap bindings can offer that Flows can't, so I ride a mix.

I've ridden Flows for years, so has a friend. Neither of us have ever even once been blown out of a binding. Except for him the time he hit a sled track he couldn't see going about 45mph after hitting a backcountry jump. But then the board and neither binding survived, he did though.

Also, the way you say "last April" makes me think that's the one and only time you have used them, and the most common issue with people having issues with Flow is improper setup. And if you're blowing out of them, that's my first thought. If they're set up correctly you actually have to position yourself to get them pop on purpose.

Learn to strap in standing up... Kick heel edge of board into snow 2-3 times to make a shelf, rest board on shelf, put other foot into binding, strap in, ride off.

say chi sin lo I don't want to make a new thread unless I have to, so I'll start here first.

Any of you Flow binding riders gone with another set of traditional bindings, but found yourself strapping into another set of Flows?

I got my first set of Flows wayyyyy back in 2010? It was the Five and used them up until last season. Then I got myself a set of Burton Cartel. I have absolutely nothing to complain about the performance of these Burton Cartels. But they do make me have to sit down and strap in.

So, who here just keeps coming back to Flows? (I know, it's a convenience issue)

Seems like they must have had some warranty website issues earlier this year, because now they are back to excellent service.
Cool. So as long as my bindings don't have their issues during the snowboarding season it'll be ok.

I seriously wish that the bindings weren't so great so that I could hate the company more for that website crap. I called them about 100 times on both numbers and they didn't answer once. It made me feel like I was going crazy...

joelee I had this setup on my very first board setup.

I had the 2016 Flow Alphas and I HATED THEM WITH A PASSION. It was a mission to get them on and a pain to take them off. I went with Union bindings (Contact Pro and Force) and am I happy I did.

dave785 Yeah they sent me two toe straps as well. Glad I have a spare.
